We stumbled upon Kudos looking for a salad for lunch. The salads we had we delicious. Generous portions, fresh ingredients, great presentation. Exactly what we were looking for. Lunch was so good we decided to come back the following morning for breakfast and were not disappointed. We both had the banana-rama french toast. It was amazing! Homemade banana bread with... More

During our week in Sea Isle City we had dinner twice at Kudos in neighboring Avalon. We ate outside on their patio and the setting made for a really nice evening. Service was good and the food tasty and well prepared. The two women in our party raved about the roast chicken. Kudos is a BYOB.

This restaurant has a diverse menu and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. This time we ate breakfast and the food was very good and better than the usual resort costs. Dinner menu looks great and we will check it out next time.

I'm so glad we went for breakfast and were so impressed we will return for dinner. The omelets were pure perfection and I think for the price range you would be hard pressed to find a better place. Go for it!

Love it here! We visit here few times a year and always love it! We prefer outdoors seating, it's a relaxing atmosphere with plants waterfalls and bamboo fence... My favorite is chicken pot pie... So yummy wish I was having one now:)

Went there for breakfast and waited for "anybody" to even ask if we wanted coffee. There were servers around, the place was not even full but no one approached our table to take our order. Finally we just got up and left. Now we know why everywhere else was packet but this place.

My husband and I have been coming here for dinner for a few years and the food is always good. We like dining on the porch and the improvements they made to the porch this year were excellent. They keep it nice and clean.

We had great breakfast of omelettes, pancakes and waffles. Coffee, tea and water served right away. We sat outside, but it did get a little uncomfortable after a while...choose outside when the temp is<90.Experimented with coconut sauce on pancakes for the first time(a friend brought since having it in Hawaii)...fantastic alternative. All dishes were quickly served, hot and delicious. Very... More

We are New Englanders, and so we know from good lobster salad. Simply out, this is THE BEST, and for two reasons. The portion is sumptuous: 2 big scoops of fresh meat. And they use no mayo, so the large scoops are pure, fresh lobster. Our party of six returned to Kudos today for lunch after two of us enjoyed... More

Ate breakfast before leaving from our vacation week to go home. Everything we had was delicious. The food was good. The servings were generous! Would definitely recommend for breakfast. It lunch and dinner are is good, I'm sure the recommendations would be the same.
